And this initiative is well received at the Financial Services Union Denmark:
“We can see in the analyzes we have made during the Covid-19-crisis, that it significantly increases the well-being of employees when they get more flexibility and the opportunity to organize their own work. So we want more of that,” says the Chairman of the Financial Services Union Denmark, Kent Petersen, to Politiken.
A subsidy to upgrade the home office
But working from home also demands new IT-solutions and comfort in the home office. That is why Danske Bank is now giving employees a one-off grant, and at the same time a wide range of IT-solutions have been launched with a focus on virtual collaboration.
One-off support is needed to improve your home workspace with, for example, a new chair, desk, or something completely different, while IT solutions such as Microsoft Teams, Yammer and more should enable you to work from home and continue to do tasks on an equal footing with your office colleagues.
